These components and interferometer systems by HP, Agilent, Excell and Teletrak, 
for measuring distance, velocity and vibration are among the most useful available.
They are simple, elegant, but do require your understanding and a little homework.
However, I) because system design is a MAJOR component of the "success" (read that
" - it works, is consistent and accurate - ") of your project, and II) because 
both engineering and tech time is expensive here in Silicon Valley, we strongly 
recommend 1) that you do your own design, and 2) that you bone up pretty 
thoroughly on the principles and details.  

- we provide tested, working laser heads. We do not measure the outout power..
We are in no position to GUARANTEE the lifetime of the head.

ILLUMINATION is the other "half" of any microscope. The choice of illumination and the illuminator itself make the difference between anumber informative view and a useless one. With a little creative effort and some tinkering, the result can be "brilliant". Several approaches are suggested:
a) Fiber Ring lights offer a quasi-darkfield approach.
b) Brightfield can be improvised by shining collimated into one eyetube and making the observation through the other. This is a vert powerful technique for revealing surface detail and creating contrast in semi-transparent materials, especially if polarizing filters are also used.
c) For diffuse lighting, take a disposable polystyrene coffee cup, cut a hole in the bottom to fit the nose of the microscope, cut a smaller hole in the side to introduce illumination, and voila, you have a 90% effective integrating "sphere" providing very uniform illumination.
d) Finally, for specular, collimated light, the new "white" LED flashlights are VERY good, and are quite small enough to aim easily. Experiment to get the best results and to see fine surface marks and indentations.

Using Digital Cameras: For Small Entrance Pupil cameras such as Nikon 950, 990, 995, to avoid vignetting (you will have to adjust the camera zoom towards midedle or telephoto end of the range) you can create perfectly focused images relying on autofocus. All that is required is to place the camera lens against the eyepiece, or close to the same position the eye would be in, focus the microscope (or telescope) until camera autofocus can "acqure" focus, and shoot. And don't forget to turn the flash to "off".

For a nicely presented technical discussion from Nikon, please view:
IOHO (Our Humble Opinion -) the Greenough geometry has fewer glass/air interfaces, is less costly for equivalent performance, and does not introduce an assymetrical element (the common objective lens) in the optical path. The result is a "clearer" image with more contrast. The same cannot be said for all brands. Nikon optics have been renowned for decades for high acuity and excellent resolution. The view through these Nikon SeteroZoom scopes rivals the best we
have seen.

Skywise's Lasers and Optics Reference Section has a nice spectrum chart (visible and beyond) with annotation
showing many of the common laser lines as well as an even more extensive list of laser types and wavelengths.

Dye Laser Dyes and Peak Emission Wavelengths

Dye lasers can operate at a wide range of wavelengths spanning the visible spectrum and well into the IR to UV
depending on the particular dye used as the lasing medium. This is a list of some commercially available laser dyes
along with their Peak Emission Wavelength (PEW). Source: LambdaPhysik.
